Welcome to F1Minute for the 25th March 2009.

Although Red Bull confirmed that Brendon Hartley will be the third driver for both themselves and Toro Rosso this year, his superlicence has been delayed, meaning they’ve turned to Coulthard to step up if the unlikely occurs. Hartley should be available by the time F1 returns to Europe, meaning that DC’s retirement could be over before it’s begun! In other reserve driver news, is reporting that Anthony Davidson will take up the role for Brawn GP. Both Anthony and DC will have to work their new positions around their BBC broadcasting commitments.

Elsewhere, Mark Webber has visited some of the regions that were affected by the recent fires in Australia. He toured some of the areas, and talked with the locals who have to deal with the aftermath of the devastation. Mark has also promised to give royalties from all his personal merchandise sales to the Victorian Bushfire Appeal.

That’s it for today, please join me again tomorrow for another F1Minute.
